Konami’s New Video Slot Machine makes its ICE Premiere
Las Vegas, NV — January 12, 2016
Konami Gaming, Inc., a global leader in casino gaming and systems, announced the upcoming arrival of its new Concerto™ video upright cabinet at the 2016 ICE Totally Gaming show in ExCeL London on February 2 - 4, 2016. Now reaching casino locations worldwide, Concerto features the largest screen size in its class, the industry’s first LCD video button panel with responsive tactile buttons, and a signature holographic side lighting element—all of which will be on display at Konami stand #S6-110. Approximately 25,000 gaming executives and professionals from more than 130 countries are expected to be in attendance at this year’s ICE show and enjoy access to one of the industry’s most anticipated video slot machines in recent years. Additional ICE showcase games include Dungeons & Dragons, Rapid Revolver™, and Frogger™.
“Concerto is one of the most important products of the year and we’re thrilled to debut its exclusive features and game themes during the 2016 ICE show,” said Matt Reback, vice president, marketing at Konami. “Concerto is already seeing powerful momentum worldwide in placements, performance, and attraction, which our international customers will be able to experience first-hand at Konami’s ICE exhibit.”
New international debut KP3+™ platform themes will be displayed on Concerto, with unique art and design features across each of the machine’s interactive display elements for a greater level of engagement and entertainment. In addition, Concerto was designed to be compatible with Konami’s KP3® library, making it a sure bet on casino floors. Also making its ICE premiere, Dungeons & Dragons is quickly gaining reach across casino properties abroad.
“The world’s first Dungeons & Dragons slots are seeing rapid traction internationally, with a complete array of custom merchandizing options from hand-painted 3D dragon toppers to faux stone design elements,” said Reback. “Another recent international release that’s getting a lot of attention is our Rapid Revolver video-mechanical hybrid slot. This machine combines a video base game on the lower screen with six vertically-mounted reels stacked up across the tall top box.”
Konami will be showing two new Rapid Revolver™ themes for the first time at ICE 2016 called Prophetess of Fortune™ and Fortune Sticks™. Both feature vivid real-time interaction between video and mechanical components and are equipped with custom bezel designs.
“This year’s ICE show sets the stage for a broad lineup of international releases, ranging from new expansions on proven products to the latest Konami games—including Frogger,” said Reback. “Our Frogger themed video slots have received strong reception across the board and we’re thrilled to be able to share it with guests at ICE 2016.”
Attendees are encouraged to visit stand #S6-110 at ExCeL London on February 2 - 4, 2016 to explore Concerto and other new Konami releases. For more information about Konami Gaming, Inc., please visit www.konamigaming.com
